Mark Ruffalo Tweets SAG Awards Acceptance Speech from Bed in London

Mark Ruffalo couldn’t make it to Sunday night’s SAG Awards ceremony to accept in person his prize for outstanding male actor in a TV movie or miniseries, but thanks to Twitter, he was able to share a makeshift acceptance speech from his bed in London. He’s currently across the pond filming “Now You See Me: The Second Act.”

Ruffalo — who beat out Billy Bob Thornton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adrien Brody and Richard Jenkins in the category — wrote that his wife and children woke him up with the news four hours before he had to be back on set.

Ruffalo also tweeted a message to director Ryan Murphy (albeit with the wrong username — inadvertently tagging the ice hockey player instead of the multihyphenate director).

He later amended:

Ruffalo was also nominated in the supporting actor category for his bigscreen performance in “Foxcatcher” but lost out to “Whiplash” star J.K. Simmons. Kevin Spacey — who won lead actor in a drama series for “House of Cards” — was also absent from the ceremony, but had yet to respond to the win via social media on Monday morning. Spacey’s award was one of three major gongs for Netflix, which scooped prizes for performance by an ensemble in a comedy series for “Orange Is the New Black” and performance by a female actor in a comedy series for “Orange” thesp Uzo Aduba.
